Is the Golden Retriever Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular pet dogs on the planet. Active, intelligent, and eager to please, a well-trained Golden is a loyal companion who expects to spend lots of time with its people. As the name suggests, the breed was originally developed to dive right into the water to retrieve waterfowl for hunters, and the result is an active energetic animal who loves to play fetch. As a result, it's a natural for breeders who want to create a mix with some of that great Golden personality.

Although all mixed-breeds are individuals, you can assume that a Golden Retriever mix will usually share strong elements of the Golden temperament. If you're looking for a chill pet who likes to kick back on the couch and watch TV, this animal may not be right for you. This dog is for active individuals or families who enjoy getting into the outdoors for lots of exercise.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs are individuals, since they are by definition not purebreds who breed true. However, if your mix looks like it's mostly Golden, expect an active dog that requires lots of exercise.

Behavior / temperament:
The Golden temperament is world-famous for its sweetness. While it's impossible to predict how other elements in the mix might affect the dog's personality, in general you might expect a mostly-Golden mix to be sweet, loyal and eager to please their people. Naturally charming, smart and well-mannered, they are quite easily trained due to their desire to please.
